Puritans Beat Eliot; Commuters Also Win
Davenport Stars for Winthrop; Dudley Scores in Fourth
Soldiers Field saw two more hard-fought games in the House tackle series yesterday, when Winthrop scored her second win by overpowering the Elephants 13-0, and Dudley turned back a weakened Lowell eleven 6-0.
The turning point of the Winthrop-Eliot game came in the second quarter, when Ralph Davenport ran back an enemy pant 40 yards along the sidelines. A few plays later he clinched the threat and tallied. Jack Carpenter kicked the point for the first conversion of the House series.
The second score was not up by Fritz Lehman, Puritan right guard, who fell on an Eliot fumble. Davenport again carried the spheroid into pay dirt. In spite of the efforts of George "Running" Waters, the Elephants couldn't reach enemy territory throughout the game.
Dudley Scores Late
The Dudley-Lowell affair was any body's game right up to the end. Both teams threatened more than once, but there was no score until the last two minutes of play-when the Commuters tossed a desperate 30-yard pass and ran the ball another 30 yards down the field to score. The extra point was missed.
In touch football, the Funsters whitewashed the Bunnies in a 48-18 triumph. Joe Romano starred for the victors.
